I keep wondering why female bank workers are perceived as very promiscuous and of easy virtue. My experience while I was working with a financial institution here in Abuja opened my eyes to a lot of things. When you go about your job, putting in all the professionalism you can. All the prospective clients (especially the men) see is a beautiful girl who he wants to woo and jump into bed with. Some of them go about this wooing in such a crude manner. And most times, I ended up depressed. One day, I put up a friend’s picture as my display picture on my blackberry messenger. A friend picked interest and asked who she is. I told him and the minute I mentioned she works with Diamond bank, he exclaimed “Ah, I am not interested!!! I was curious so I asked why he lost interest all of a sudden and he said ladies who work in banks are indirect prostitutes, sleeping around with every man all because of bank deposits. How sad! I mean, what a way to generalize and consider any woman who works with the bank as promiscuous… But then, I remembered a certain sex tape that was released last year. A certain woman, a top placed female bank worker having sexual intercourse with her junior staff in the office and I get asking for the reason behind such act. Personally, I think promiscuity is an individual thing even though I know that certain factors can influence or change people. But when you know who you are and values you live for or by, you won’t be tossed up and down. I have heard different stories about the high level of promiscuity in different industries and sectors. I have heard a lot about nurses and their sexcapades with their patients. I have heard a lot about actors sleeping around. I have also heard a lot about politicians and it goes on and on and on. Different stories from different industries. So my question today is, which industry has the highest level of promiscuity or sex scandals? Is it the banking industry? Is it the movie industry? Are the nurses more guilty? What of the politicians? I have read stories about our teachers too. So are teachers also guilty? What of the churches? What of the media sector? I need your opinions on this and I also want to hear from you the reason or reasons for promiscuity. Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!! Written by: Marilyn Anona.
